    Well, it has been a long time since I've been on here posting tunes (life gets in the way sometimes). I am finally settled in a new home cross country and have my studio semi set up and this is the first of what I hope is many more tunes to come.

    First off, thanks to Stepa K for sharing his great vocal work. You can find this acapella here:


    His profile can be found here:

    Now to the nuts and bolts of this exercise. I used a Fender acoustic, PRS electric, Ibanez bass, Zoom G9.2tt effects pedal, Peavey amp, Alesis key board, and Samplitude DAW. All the notes are mine except for one cello loop from Magix and drums are from a friend of mine. The vocals were pitched up from Ab to A. Ozone used for mixing and mastering. As most of you know, I'm almost deaf at this point, so if the mix is off, please let me know. I do most everything by sight and waveforms and it can be a challenge to get things close.

    Anyway, it is great to be back among the creative folks here at the Loop. Again, my thanks to Stepa K for sharing his vocal talents. I sincerely hope I did them justice. If you are interested in using this commercially, please contact him as it is his song, not mine. I'll allow downloads until/unless he tells me otherwise. Thanks for listening. I hope all is well.

    Here is the link to the tune:

    Hey guys, thanks for the welcome back. It's always like coming home when I've been gone for a while. Hopefully I'll have some musical treats to share with everyone. I've got a couple of new guitars and a new mandolin so who knows!!

    Good to see you back! Hope your break was mostly pleasant.

    Maybe this will be inspiration for me to start listening to/commenting on tracks here again. Maybe even uploading.

    Hey Pat, Dave, Steve, it's good to see some "old" friendly faces on here. I laughed about the "Looking for rapper.com" comment too, Dave. Holy cow, I used to think it was bad, but now it's like Craig's List but little to nothing of value to sell, haha. Maybe Shan will get it sorted at some point. Looking forward to catching up with all of you. I hope all is well.
